Kevin McAlister - Trustee

I was born in Stockton-on-Tees in 1961 and I am married to Yvonne. We have two children Shaun and Cameron.

Cameron the youngest was born in 1991 and was diagnosed with Autism at a very early age. He started at the Emsworth when he was four and a half, working his way throughout the Society provisions until leaving and going on to ESPA and now while still living at home as a volunteer in a local museum

I have been a Trustee on a number of occasions, firstly from 1996 to 2001 and again from 2009 to 2012.

Stepping down in 2012 as work was taking me away from the area and not allowing me to fulfil my role as I would have liked.

Having left my full time work in funeral operations for a national company and now working part-time as a business consultant has allowed me to once again take a more proactive role within the Society.

I believe that the trustees with a range of backgrounds, knowledge and skills can help those managing and delivering our services and it’s important that you give back to those that you have been supported by over the years.
